The Human Planet

BBC / Discovery

Two years in the making, the Human Planet is a landmark series from the BBC and Discovery, that looks at man's amazing relationship with nature in today's world. Early on in the production, I was asked, with my friend Simon Darlow, to submit some ideas for music to accompany the programmes. Nitin Sawhney was eventually given the mammoth task of composing and producing the soundtrack.

These are some of our ideas for the show.
